After surviving an almost fatal jet ski accident in May, Sean Kingston is back on his feet and attending Hollywood events.
The 21-year-old musician walked his first red carpet since the accident at Sunday’s Teen Choice Awards, and he says he’s feeling better than ever.
“I’m feeling good, I’m feeling blessed, a 100 percent,” he told People magazine. “I’m happy to [be] back healthy, and I’m going into the studio tomorrow.”
The “Beautiful Girls” singer has come a long way since May 29, when he crashed into a bridge while riding a jet ski with a companion. As a result, he suffered a broken jaw, a fractured wrist and water in his lungs. According to People, Kingston also suffered a torn aorta that required open heart surgery just 11 days following his jet ski accident.
But on Sunday, Kingston was back on top, taking the stage to present pal Justin Bieber with the Choice Male Artist Teen Choice Award at the ceremony.
“I learned that in life, anything can happen and you have to count your blessings and worship God and believe in God,” Kingston tells People of his ordeal. “And know that anything can happen, so you have to be cautious about what you do.”
